What We Do

The Sociable Scientists are driven by a belief that active engagement in leisure enhances quality of life for individuals, communities, and our society as a whole. We design and deliver creative research projects, marketing campaigns, knowledge mobilization strategies, and community development initiatives from sustainability and leisure perspectives. We take an active and applied approach to each and every project to ensure our clients and partners are involved and engaged in both the process and results, thus enhancing the collective capacity of those we work with.
